A BRIEF PEDIGREE, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: My mother was a mare
Last Line: Some other families die out.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Asses & Mules

My mother was a Mare;
My father was, alas,
(It pains me to declare),
A veritable Ass.
With rare exceptions, as a rule,
There're no descendants from a Mule --
The simple reason why, no doubt,
Some other families die out.
